The visual editor only allows for a limited set of HTML elements. <progress> is kinda unusual and probably not allowed by default in TinyMCE. This sounds reasonable to me, as the <progress> alone isn't very useful.

You can hook into the tiny_mce_before_init filter to modify the extended_valid_elements setting.
